Coolbits2/5700lq question & problem..........
This one has me stumped - My Albatron 5700lq has never run good & I was attempting to see what the issues were with the card and my motherboard.While attempting to 'dumb down' my card to see if refresh rates were a problem,I set coolbits2 option at a refresh rate(68 hz Hor) my monitor apparently does not support,because I now have the "black screen of death".No big prob.I'll just put an old PCI card in and keep working-or so I thought.The following tries have done nothing to get the card working in my AGP slot:1.System restore to before I installed coolbits,2.remove battery to try to reset the mobo NVram,3.mobo reset to safe defaults,4.several other small things.Any thoughts on this much appreciated- for instance,where does coolbits write refresh rate override in XP so I can fix this? my system specs below:

Xp home Sp1
Gigabyte 8ik1100 rev.2,512 mb.pc 3200 ddr ram,400 mhz,
800mhz FSB,Dual ch.ram
Intel P4 2.8/Hyperthreading
420 watt P.S.
albatron 5700lq,256 mb ram
120 gig sata WD HD

Have you tried booting to safe mode? Do you have any other monitors you can hook up to it? Just some ideas.

Yes,Zeta,boot to safe mode was very first thing I tried.Also have pci card running the same monitor right now!The card is ok in another machine-it runs fine there.
Maybe I need to go over and talk to the coolbits inventor ,Newt?
